09: Words of Truth – Thought Starters — 3 Comments

  1. Thank you Joyce, you got me thinking again. The set of questions under #1 I think is worth spending some time with. But I also thought the quote at the end was interesting, “The worst moment for the atheist is when he is thankful and has nobody to thank.”

    As I ponder the text that says, "Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be" (Rom. 8:7 NKJV). I wonder if the atheist is even capable of considering the source of blessing beyond himself. To me perhaps it is like an ape that looks at a work of art yet has no mind about what it is - can't appreciate it because to the animal it is just another object, nothing more.

    Amen!(4)
  2. Yes Tyler I enjoy yours and Joyce questions, it makes you think especially when it comes to the truth. Jesus says He is the Truth the way and the light. IN Ecclesiastes. Solomon who call himself the preacher says in chapter 12:9-12.He came to the conclusion. Fear God and keep His Commandments, and every work weather it's good or evil G od shall bring every work into judgment, my mother favorite proverb was Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding in all your way's acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.

    Amen!(1)
  3. The thought of being thankful but having no one to thank is interesting to say the least. As far back as I can remember, God has been so gracious to me. I love Him so much because He first loved me. It seems as though the older I get the better my relationship with God grows. Knowing that God loves me gives me the assurance that all of my faults and struggles are important to Him. I am an overcomer simply because of the Cross. We are victorious in Christ.

    Amen!(1)
